And the Awards Go To: Facebook, Razorfish and Royal Hawaiian


Great interiors from the winners of Northern California’s IIDA Honor Awards 

The local design community gathered at Oakland’s Fox Theater on March 25 for the annual
2010 Honor Awards sponsored by the International Interior Design Association. 

Awards went to a juried selection of projects from member firms, designers and students, including the special Pioneers in Design award, which was given to Cameron Sinclair and Kate Stohr, the founders of nonprofit organization, Architecture for Humanity

Top honors were given to Gensler for the SF offices of Razorfish, where neon lighting and modern materials come together for an energetic yet relaxing work environment: 

The Facebook offices, designed by Studio O+A, could very well take the place of Chiat|Day‘s fun-office fame. It’s like a grown-up dorm filled with modern classics – all wrapped up in Willy Wonka packaging… or something like that:

I could totally work here… the third office to win an honor award was designed by Cary Bernstein Architect. The offices for San Francisco design firm, One & Co., are a comforting take on streamlined modern design: 

In the hospitality category, honor awards went to Wexler’s restaurant, with its memorable billowing black ceiling feature imagined by Aidlin Darling Design:

Last but not least, the fifth honor award (which also received Best in Show status) was given to Philpotts & Associates for their renovation of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. Waikiki’s big pink hotel in is suddenly fashionable again after a makeover from the best SF/Honolulu design team around!
